Very Machiavellian.! For years death penalty advocates have been making the death penalty sentence harder to implement and now with all the rules on execution, the lengthy appeals,etc - its too expensive! Its expensive because they made it expensive. Lets compare costs to when we first resumed the death penalty, compare it to today's federal costs, to Texas even. No instead the debate has shifted to "is it to expensive to keep or not" - never the discussion on how to reduce the expenses by following best practices used elsewhere.
